Salmos 11

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1En el Señor hallo refugio.
    ¿Cómo, pues, se atreven a decirme:
    «Huye al monte, como las aves»?
Vean cómo tensan sus arcos los malvados:
    preparan las flechas sobre la cuerda
    para disparar desde las sombras
    contra los rectos de corazón.
Cuando los fundamentos son destruidos,
    ¿qué le queda al justo?

El Señor está en su santo templo,
    en los cielos tiene el Señor su trono,
y atentamente observa al ser humano;
    con sus propios ojos lo examina.
El Señor examina a justos y a malvados,
    y aborrece a los que aman la violencia.
Hará llover sobre los malvados
    ardientes brasas y candente azufre;
    ¡un viento abrasador será su suerte!

Justo es el Señor, y ama la justicia;
    por eso los íntegros contemplarán su rostro.

Amplified Bible

Psalm 11

The Lord a Refuge and Defense.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1In the Lord I take refuge [and put my trust];
How can you say to me, “Flee like a bird to your mountain;

For look, the wicked are bending the bow;
They take aim with their arrow on the string
To shoot [by stealth] in darkness at the upright in heart.

“If the foundations [of a godly society] are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?”


The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
His eyes see, His eyelids test the children of men.

The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked,
And His soul hates the [malevolent] one who loves violence.

Upon the wicked (godless) He will rain coals of fire;
Fire and [a]brimstone and a dreadful scorching wind will be the portion of their cup [of doom].

For the Lord is [absolutely] righteous, He loves righteousness (virtue, morality, justice);
The upright shall see His face.
